I'm Making Marionettes

I've been doing a lot of research lately on marionette making.  I've always had an interest in puppets- but more recently I find vintage marionettes fascinating.  It is an old craft, an art form really- transforming a wooden figure into a dancing puppet.  So out to the shed I go, where I am making my own.  Being a carpenter, Mike has an endless supply of wood scraps.  So today I'm Gipetto- a good day indeed!  I will keep you posted!
Look at these!  I might have to get them!  These 3 vintage marionettes are for sale from Etsy's JunkyardGypsy- you can find them here. I LOVE these!
Have a wonderful weekend!  & do something silly- like make a marionette :)
